Things You Need to Start Saying No To

Sorry Shondra, the ‘Year of No’ is a real thing (that’s a witty reference to Shondra Rhimes “Year of Yes” book for my non-literary friends.) Often on the weekends, I’m stressing about the projects that I need to complete in order to be prepared for the upcoming week. When my friends want to kick it and have fun, I am hyperaware of the things that I could be doing in order to be productive over relaxed.

Jogging Tips for Beginners to Lose Weight

Anytime that I say that I go out for a jog I get an influx of messages asking how I started running, how to build motivation and tips for beginners. Let me be clear when I say that “going for a run” often means a mix of walking and jogging. So perhaps, jogging for beginners might make more sense here. My entire life I’ve been…
